Recipe Details

Story

French bread pizza brings back warm and fuzzy childhood memories. This one gets a grownup, vegetable-forward makeover we’re obsessed with. Warm, crusty baguette is topped with heaps of locally sourced mushrooms and organically sourced spinach. With an easy homemade tomato sauce and loads of mozzarella, this is comfort food at its best—melty, gooey, and perfectly cheesy.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 450[degrees]F. Rinse tomatoes and halve. Rinse spinach and roughly chop. Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel and quarter caps, discarding stems. Finely chop oregano leaves, discarding stems. Mince garlic. Slice mozzarella as thinly as possible. Halve rolls lengthwise, wrap together in foil, and place in oven to warm for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Roast Vegetables

    Roast Vegetables

    On a baking sheet, toss tomatoes and mushrooms with ½ of garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and pepper. Transfer to oven and roast until tomatoes begin to brown and mushrooms are softened, about 10 minutes. Remove and transfer vegetables to a medium bowl. Immediately add spinach and toss to wilt.
  3. Make Tomato Sauce

    Make Tomato Sauce

    While vegetables roast, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small pot over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add spice mix and remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomato purée and cook until flavors are melded, about 3 minutes more. Remove pot from heat. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Assemble Pizzas
